Our server was great. The food and drinks were very good. We had a great time!!
The attendant at the airport rental car exit gate suggested this place and it did not disappoint. Fun, yummy and great ambiance. Always listen to the locals!
There was 8 of us. But they said our reservation was for 6 at 5:30. So we had to wait for a table that wasn’t very nice for us. Food was just fair.
As always, lovely experience. Food was superb. Attentive service despite very busy night
We wanted a very special place to dine with out of town friends we hadn't seen in many many years. El Patron met every expectation! Food, service, atmosphere was superior.
Had the sea bass and naked relleno, and it was fantastic. Waiter was great. Live music. Perfect dinner!
Great Food and atmosphere! Quiet enough for conversation, but lively enough with music!
Order had to be sent back as it had been sitting in the “window” way too long!
Excellent food and the waiter was outstanding. Our glasses never got below halfway and was constantly checking on us. They were pretty busy at the time but the food came very quickly.
Some excellent options. Lots of cheese (the way I like it)--thin chips. Salsa and some dishes (e.g. Enchilada Casserole) can run pretty hot for non-native-seared-tongue folk (as the menu properly warns).
Overall, I consider this the most upscale of the Mexican restaurants in ABQ, and feel the food warrants the prices (though would still like to be able to buy a pitcher of Margaritas or Sangria :).
New to the area got their about 15 minutes early and they did not have a problem seating me early. The service was quick and nice the food was prompt delicious and hot!
One of the best happy hours in ABQ, at least that we've found since moving here. We always eat in the bar for that reason. The food was great, as was the service. Not sure we could ask for more.
Great crema on calabacitas
We did not get the correct orders. We waited a very long time for food. Some of us got our food before others in our party. Overall, some of the food was cold and did not taste as good as it usually does
We were seated within minutes of our reservation time. The service to order drinks and food was a bit slow. The food and drinks were very good and the prices were great. We will be back.
